You might think your wedding day will inevitably pan out to be the least eco-friendly occasion imaginable, but you actually couldn't be more wrong. Yes, let's be real—with the obscene amounts of florals, wedding stationery, and one-time-use-only decorations involved in the process, you're probably going to generate a much higher carbon footprint than normal. But, there are plenty of ways to take it easy on Mother Nature and reduce waste on your big day, starting with baby steps as small as nixing the celebratory rice exit toss.
In honor of Earth Day, we challenge you to be mindful of your impact on the environment as you move forward with your wedding planning. And, so that you officially have no excuse to skimp out on sustainability for your big day, we scoured the eco-friendly sphere for the best natural invitations, wedding favors, decor, and beauty picks. From organic lipstick that's worthy of even the pickiest beauty pros to biodegradable confetti, you have endless options for going green without spending too much green. Getting on Mother Nature's good side is bound to mean instant karma (no rain) for your wedding day, right!?
